Can't wait till November living here in NJ. Wonder how long it will take for the online games here to get good.
We should all get a BSBH game going one day for fun. or go to AC together
Mikey, what's your most memorable hand?
Ok, I love this shit. Here's the situation: I'm in Vegas, and I'm in a deep stack tourny at the Venetian. At the time, I'm looking to put a bankroll together for obvious reasons. Being in this situation can hurt your game, as it can make you come to a decision that you normally wouldn't come to, or maybe make you lean 1 way and not the other because of financial reasons. In this particular case, it cost me. We were on the bubble of this tourny and 1st place was 150 peppers, I was top 10 in chips with just under 40 players left. I've been playing with the same table for 2 straight days, there was no table redraw going into the 2nd day. So everyone at the table knew each other pretty well. There were 2 players at my table that I had to keep an eye on, and the 3 of us acknowledged each other for sure. The blinds were 3k-6k, I was under the gun with QQ, and I pop it to 16 or 18k. A short stack shoves all in for 30k. It comes to one of the guys that I had to keep my eye on. He tanks it for about 3 minutes and re-jams all in for 180k. It folds back around to me. This hand won't knock me out, but it will crush my stack. To me, he has 1 of 4 hands, maybe 5. He either has AK, AA, KK, or JJ, with an outside shot of 10's. 2 of those hands have me dominated, 1 is a coin flip, and I'm seriously about 20-80 in flip situations, so it doesn't always even out like everyone says. That's a load of shit, so I have that in the back of my mind. I tank it for a while and fold. The short stack (although irrelevant) had 88, the guy that jammed all in had AK. I would have held. I would have been the chip leader by a mile. I ended up finishing 13th and winning 3k. I was sick to my stomach for weeks over that hand. When I went back to the Rio, my friend and I talked about the hand with 5 pros. 3 would have folded, and 2 + my friend would have made the call. I would have steam rolled the rest of that field. They were disgustingly bad players.
So I weigh his hand more heavily towards AA, KK or AK given your description of the play and lay it down to fight another day.
